About a year ago, we called for model-turned-fashion-maven, Noni Gasa's return to TV and in a few months, we'll be getting our wish as she has been announced as one of the judges for South Africa's first ever season of Project Runway South Africa.
Project Runway is an American reality television series which debuted back in 2004 that focuses on fashion design.
The show sees contestants compete with each other to create the best clothes and are restricted by time, materials and theme. Their designs are judged by a panel, and one or more designers are typically eliminated from the show each week.
During each season, contestants are progressively eliminated until only a few contestants remain. These finalists prepare a complete fashion collection for New York Fashion Week, which determines the winner.
The South African version will see contestants duke it out for a spot at Paris Fashion week.
How does Noni Gasa manage to be super private and yet so RELEVANT & EXCLUSIVE? ♥️. A whole branding lesson/question for me. She is a study 😭#ProjectRunwaySA— NOLO♥️ (@BonoloSe) May 4, 2018
Gasa, who has managed to successfully evade the media and headlines over the years, will be joined on the panel by Rahim Rawjee, the mastermind behind Africa's made-to-measure luxury menswear brand Row-G and Gert Johan Coetzee.
Gasa, who has carved out a career as a top fashion PR specialist with a dynamic background in media and marketing also has experience co-hosting a number of major television productions such as, Big Brother Africa, Media Matters, The M-Net Movies Show, and starring as a judge on Mzansi Magic’s reality model search, Diamond In The Ruff.
Dhlomo announced that there will be a lunch event for the show at some point where the show's host will be announced. Who do you think it will be?
